Trying a few techniques .....

Hi peeps

I made these a couple of weeks ago when Linda was over .... We started out trying direct to paper / one layer techniques but kind of went off on our own tangents as we do .....

This one is using Paper Artsy Stamps 
I stamped the flower, masked it off , stamped the wood panel then coloured in etc ... I've got a bit of a halo around the image but not to worry eh ! It adds to the grungyness!

This is using Indigo Blu stamps
I stamped coloured with DIs and a few splashes and matted it up on white mats, then  splattered around some more with DIs 

This Hydrangea Stamp set from Inkylicious is one of my faves, I stamped it onto an old book page,
coloured it and cut it out, I created the block by tearing a 'hole' in a bit of copy paper and used it as a mask, then just layered up the flower and added the sentiment then
matted on card coloured with the same DI 

They are all quite simple but effective I think !
Thanks for looking 

Be good
